NCT01577173

  Purpose

This phase II, open-label, randomized study will evaluate the efficacy and safet y of MEHD7945A versus cetuximab in patients with recurrent/metastatic squamous c ell carcinoma of the head and neck who have progressed during or following plati num-based chemotherapy. Patients will be randomized to receive either MEHD7945A 1100 mg intravenously (iv) every 2 weeks or cetuximab 400 mg/m2 iv loading dose followed by 250 mg/m2 iv weekly. Patients treated with cetuximab (Arm B) may cro ss-over to MEHD7945A (Arm A) upon central confirmation of progressive disease an d upon meeting eligibility criteria. Anticipated time on study treatment is unti l disease progression or intolerable toxicity occurs.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult patients, >/= 18 years of age
  • Histologically confirmed Stage III or IV recurrent/metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (R/M SCCHN)
  • Progressive disease on or after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy regimen for R/M SCCHN (maximum of 6 cycles)
  • No more than one platinum-based chemotherapy regimen for R/M SCCHN is allowed
  • Prior platinum-based treatment as definitive chemo/radiotherapy for locally advanced disease is allowed if completed/terminated >/= 6 months before the platinum-based regimen for R/M SCCHN
  • Consent to provide archival tumor tissue for biomarker testing
  • Measurable disease per RECIST v1.1
  • ECOG performance status of 0, 1 or 2
  • Adequate hematologic, renal and liver function

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Nasopharyngeal cancer
  • Prior treatment with an investigational or approved agent for the purpose of inhibiting HER family members
  • This includes but is not limited to cetuximab, panitumumab, erlotinib, geftinib, and lapatinib

  • Leptomeningeal disease as the only manifestation of the current malignancy
  • Active infection requiring iv antibiotics
  • Active autoimmune disease that is not controlled by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
